for president obama's speech later this week at the university of miami. in 2008, senator obama beat senator john mccain by 2 to 1 in the margin in the youth vote in this country. it's crucial for the president to get similar numbers this time around if he's going to win the state of florida. of course, to vote they must be registered and voter registration drives have been underway for months. according to statistics from the zx 2.8 million people are registered as independents or with a third party. the numbers are interesting, but it means nothing if there's no emotional component that will motivate them to do it. this is why the debates are so important in today's information culture. there must be a real emotional appeal by president obama if he's to succeed in getting these voters out to the polls. the best registration drive imaginable will not do a thing if there isn't this gut feeling that these young folks must get out and vote because they can make a difference. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the democratic party and one of the leaders in this portion of florida. the yout
back into contention in one night. >> senator dodd, you debated president obama repeatedly in 2007. you were a big part of one of the most important moments of that series of debates. let's go to a clip. >> failed. we have failed. >> you said you thought it made sense to do it. >> no, i didn't, chris. the point is, what are we going to do with all the illegal immigrants? >> that's a legitimate issue. driver's license goes too far. >> you may say that. if somebody runs into you today that is undocumented. >> there's ways of dealing with it. it's a privilege, not a right. >> first of all, what is going through your mind in a moment like that? do you buy the suggestion that president obama was not a great debater? >> i was asking the question that the audience was asking at that moment. a difficult moment for hillary clinton. her governor in new york was talking about granting licenses. not wants to put herself at odds with her own government. i asked a question that a moderator might have asked. think george has it right. the debates that newt gingrich and i went through in the primary pr

. back in 2008, remember, senator obama won ohio then, he only got 47% of the white women vote. these are middle class women, a lot of them are working women, some of them have been laid off the last four years, some of them have had their husbands laid off the last four years. the 47% remark, i had a woman come up to me in michigan and talk about this, i met several in ohio today, it offended them. some have had to ask for food stamps or other government assistance over the past several years. it offended them and makes them think romney doesn't understand their every day struggles of getting the kids off to school, paying the bills. that is still a warning sign here. he's making progress but if i had to put one thing on a bill board and say to win the election, romney better learn to deal with this, it would be that. the blowback from the 47%, especially among middle class women. >> gloria, you say polls are showing suburban women are keyed to a romney win at this point. >> those aren't mutually exclusive. when you look at the poll, for example, on suburban women in our cnn p

there. >> you know, i had to laugh. because while it is true, senator obama did not have a lot of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when
to seek negotiations. he resisted stronger sanctions. in fact, when senator mendez and senator kirk suggested tougher sanctions, obama opposed them. it was only after congress forced him to that he went forward and he's allowed the u.n. security council, russia and china to determine our policy. all these are acts of weaknesses as opposed to making clear and we haven't worked closely with our allies as evidence by the recent u.n. meeting when the president had time for whoopi goldberg but couldn't meet with netanyahu. >> one of the criticisms, this appears to be management of the arab spring. that is a big part. does governor romney think it was a mistake to push mubarak out? >> what he has said is that we have forces that are of extre extremism and forces of moderation an we should be aligned and help those forces. a difference in egypt is one that's on the table today. governor romney says we should have conditions. we shouldn't write off a billion dollar debt. >> but going back to mubarak. was that a mistake? does governor romney believe that's a mistake? >> how it was handled wa
tomorrow is showing how he's worked in a bipartisan way naming all the different times as a senator, a vp, that he's worked specifically with republicans to get things done. i think that's where obama differentiates himself also. i think romney and ryan are going too much partisanship. i think the one who wins the independent is a candidate. i'm really going to work with people and i've done it as vp, president and senator. >> i so hope we get to see biden, tomorrow. joe, if you're listening, be yourself. give us some jokes. give us some off color. >> i don't think he can. >> give us some gaffes. >> people like joe biden. >> they do. >> america likes joe biden. >> i like joe biden. >> by the way, joe six-pack white dudes who watch football like joe biden. >> even my dad likes joe biden. we're out of time. thanks so much. another brilliant conversation. i want to thank wolf blitzer for letting us hang out in his "the situation room." now back to wolf. >> excellent unsolicited advice pete and company. thanks very much. >>> the republican vice presidential hopeful paul ryan sat down exclusiv

right at this minute now as we welcome governor palin and senator biden. >> reporter: the reason this is going to be a different encounter is because of all the progress that mitt romney made against president obama in last week's debate. he's gaining in the polls which puts a lot of pressure on vice president bide ton try to stem that momentum. you can expect some feisty exchanges like we saw in 1984 and four years later. >> let me help you with the difference between iran and the embassy in lebanon. >> i almost resent vice president bush patronizing attitude that you have to teach me about foreign policy. i've been a member of congress for sixth six years. >> i have as much experience in the congress as jack kennedy did when he sought the presidency. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> reporter: now, larry, i had a great conversation yesterday with former senator bob dole who of course both of us know. bob dole said he expects joe biden to come out swinging and not to let up. and in
was medicare. >> why? >> because joe biden did what president obama should have done which was to look into the camera and look at me, i'm a democrat. all right? i've been in the senate for years. we're the democratic party. we believe in medicare. we believe in social insurance. do you trust me or do you trust this 40-something-kid who comes from the world of conservative think tanks scheming to get rid of the program since its beginning and inception? who do you trust? that was just the simple question. he said, look at the reputational capital that has been built up over time in those two parties over what we are going to do. and trust yourself on who is going to vouch save medicare. >> on the issue of afghanistan, it was clear paul ryan is arguing a position, passionately, that's unpopular. i mean -- >> what is the position? >> there's no -- well, he got lost in the answers on afghanistan. i don't disagree with that at all. the point is the position the vice president was arguing which is we want to have afghan forces doing that, we want less american forces doing it, that is a pos

of the senate. and it was at 80 for a long time, eamon, things went sour. and it's -- at the same time, with president obama's improving chances, this went the opposite way. >> yeah, what's interesting here, the conventional wisdom people expect a status quo election. they expect the democrats will maintain the senate. they expect that republicans will maintain the house. but it's tightening and that could go in any direction. >> did you mention ohio? >> i did not. >> that's tightened up too. >> last i saw was five points. >> and watch -- >> ten previous. >> and watch what's going on at the presidential level. because that is important even though these aren't battleground states. i looked up the spread yesterday. if you look at the 2008 election, mid-september is where obama started to really separate from john mccain. and the graph just goes away. he starts running away with it right in mid-september. the graph this year if you look at the daily tracking polls goes the exact opposite way for obama. he was -- he had a pretty wide separation with romney and now it's completely convergi

down and that does help republicans down the ballot, it means they will pick up senate seats, and they're not going to lose as many house seats as maybe they worried about predebate. >> giving the obama campaign or the inability to let the debate go in terms of the dialogue, what do you hear about the cold hand of fear grabbing chicago? >> well, it is. and it's funny, look, whenever there's a bad moment in a campaign, then suddenly fingers begin pointing, so then there is what's going on with debate prep, how come that didn't go well, that's just naturally someone that was part of it not wanting to take full blame. so there it's a little bit of that. i think you're going to see internally that nothing's changed. but i'm hearing chatter that maybe some people from the last debate are going to at least get involved in the debate prep process. he will bring in some of these sharpest communicators to do that. >> and of course as i said to my friends in the obama administration, every administration as many seasons, every campaign has many seasons, last week, a lot of people were saying thi

know, he called obama rational a few nights ago. to univision, president barack obama in a spanish language interview said, we do not see anything that venezuela is doing against the u.s. national interest. that goes against what republicans, including senator marco rubio, has said clearly and loudly. venezuela supports syria. venezuela supports iran. they could, in fact, be supporting hezbollah here in the country, although there isn't any concrete proof of that. those people, the republicans are saying, look, pay attention to venezuela. we need to understand what they're doing in this hemisph e hemisphere. >> paula newton, thanks very much. >>> a notorious self-confessed killer reportedly about to become a father behind bars. we have details on that and a lot more news coming up here in "the situation room." in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. its unique micro-clean formula kills 99.9% of odor causing bacteria an
